Skincare - Body - Egyptian Magic - Healing Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/16/2015

I've been slathering this stuff on my face and neck 2-3 times a week after I use my Clairsonic and after I shower and it's made a great improvement in the texture of my skin. I get very dry near my nose (especially in winter) and this balm has helped quite a bit. I don't experience nearly as much flakiness as I used to. I have what I like to call "sneaky flakiness"-my …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/24/2012

Seche...oh the problems we've had. I've been convinced for a long time that this stuff is just awful, but after experimenting with it for a while, I've finally found conditions where it (sort of?) works for me.

I started out with Poshe as my top coat, and I still like it very much. The top coat that is my favorite (as of now) is Out the Door. I like it so much I bought …

Polishes - Essie - Beyond Cozy

Nov/23/2012

I don't reach for glitters often (Ruby Pumps excluded), but this one happened to catch my eye in CVS. It's from the Winter 2012 collection and is a very lovely antique silver with occasional specks of champagne gold. It actually reminds me of an old Express Finish Maybelline polish I had back in middle school. The glitter is fine enough to look sophisticated, and catches the light …Read more

Treatments - Orly - Cuticle Therapy Creme

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/20/2012

After using cuticle butters, and creams with an almost paste-like consistency, the consistency of this cream surprised me. It's light, slippery, and smells like the inside of a grandma's bureau. But lord, does it work. My cuticles stay soft, the residue left behind isn't overly greasy, and best of all, since I started using it, I haven't had one hangnail. Not one!!!

Nail Tools - OPI - Crystal File

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/20/2012

This was the first crystal nail file I bought, and while I now alternate between it and my NailTek file, this one will always be my favorite.
I have very soft, weak nails that tend to peel into layers at the tips, and the metal files I used to use just seemed to exacerbate the problem (granted, they were not even close to high quality nail files). So when I bought a treatment to strengthen …

Polishes - China Glaze - Nail Polish - Ruby Pumps

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2012

What can I say about Ruby Pumps that hasn't already been said? It's divine, perfect, gorgeous...it's a holy grail polish, and everyone should own a bottle.
It was the only polish from the Wizard of Ooh Ahz to make it to the core line, and I can see why. It is the most beautiful, glowing, glittery red on the market. The base is a deep pink-red jelly, filled with lots and lots …

Polishes - Rescue Beauty Lounge - Grunge

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2012

This one is such a chameleon! I'm not sure what to call it...it really depends on the lighting. It changes from a soft, dirty grey-lavender, to a taupe-pink, to pure beige to a combination of all three. In the bottle, there is a good amount of extra-fine silver shimmer, but once on the nail it sort of fades to the background and only shows up in bright lighting, or if you're really …Read more

Polishes - wet n wild - Megalast - 2% Milk

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/08/2012

2% Milk is a lovely, creamy beige jelly polish. The formula is excellent, dry time moderate, and gives your nails such a sophisticated, soft look. You could build it up to opacity, but it will probably take 3 or more coats. I think it's best worn at 2, so my half-moons and visible nail line show through slightly.

I had to take a point off for the brush though. Oh the …

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2012

I got this as my birthday freebie back in November (it came with the original Sugar lip treatment in mini tubes) and I've got to say, I'm impressed. It seems to work well with my body chemistry because it really does help with my chapped lips. The color is so pretty-just a nice, fresh wash of pinkish color that brightens up my face and is perfect in the spring and summer when I …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Supre Hempz Curl Booster

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/17/2012

I should probably first state that this is 100% a love or hate product. If you dislike the feeling of hairspray, you're not going to like this...not at first anyway.

I had expected Curl Booster to be more like those texture-beach wave-type sprays, but it's not. The best way I can review this product is to explain how I use it and how it feels throughout each …
